Birds of a Feather — Book Fair!

Hello everyone. In a few hours it will be Thanksgiving Day here in the USA.  In addition to the giving of thanks, it’s associated with good food, football games, and shopping.  I’m grateful for a lot, but I haven’t been able to write because of my “stuff.”  One thing that always makes me feel better is doing something to lift up others.  Thinking about that, I suddenly decided to do a mini-book fair.

There are endless wonderful indie books.  Immediately I saw that I had to set a limit for my post. A theme was in order, but what? Abruptly, Robbie Cheadle’s story “The Christmas Bird” reminded me that I’ve included birds in a few of my own books.  That became my fair theme, Birds of a FeatherThis mini-book fair features stories that include birds… and a few that have wings, but not necessarily birds.  But there are no turkeys among them!

Naturally, I couldn’t resist making promotional images for them.

Below, I’ve provided universal purchase links for the books. Most are available in a variety of formats — some even have audio books.  You can also get all the information about the books at their links.  Ready?  Here goes.

The Birds of a Feather Book Fair

I’m starting with my Twilight Zone-ish novel, set in the 1950s, with lots of music. It features Jinx, a far from ordinary magpie.

S.R. (Sarah) Mallery included a cockatoo who is bound to make you cackle in her witchy series. So far there are two books.  You’ll have to ask Sarah if there will be more.

My first “three things” style pantser blog series (which became books) was about Pip, an unflappable flapper. In the second book, she took in a parrot that stole the show.  Cracker had belonged to a very, very bad man and she had the vocabulary to prove it. Whenever the macaw cried “Who’s your daddy?” Granny Phanny would nearly faint at the bad language.  (You don’t have to read the first book to enjoy the second, or the third.)

Of course, there’s the hoopoe bird that gave me the idea for this fair. By Robbie Cheadle, it’s a semi-autobiographical micro-read for all ages.

An unplanned character quickly became a reader favorite in my “pantser” fantasy about misfit faeries.  Tiny though he was, Bob the Hummingbird had the heart of a lion.

Not Exactly Birds, but Wings

Who says birds of a feather have to actually be birds?  I couldn’t resist including these, since they at least had wings or were birdlike.

And what wings!  Olga Núñez Miret created a young adult trilogy with teenagers and angels.  Sorry, but I absolutely have to say that it’s divine.

I won’t spoil anything by saying how birds come into this marvelous story by D. L. Finn.  It’s not your ordinary beach read.

I hope you’ll do some shopping now.  After all, books are a calorie-free treat!  Friendly comments are welcome.  Hugs on the wing.

  1. I especially connected with your comment about how good it feels to lift others up. That’s one of my standard pieces of advice for those who feel unfulfilled or think something is missing in their life. What better person to choose than Robbie?

  2. How fun to share all these books with birds and wings, Teagan. I’m about 1/3 of the way through Robbie’s new one, and I’m enjoying it. Maybe I’ll finish it tonight. Happy Thanksgiving, my friend, and Happy Reading. ❤

  3. Reblogged this on Just Olga and commented:
    Teagan Geneviene​ recommends some birds and wing-related books for the holiday, including some of mine! Thanks, Teagan, and readers don’t miss on her recommendations. Her books are awesome and she knows what she is talking about!

  4. Happy Thanksgiving, Teagan, and to all of your followers as well! And you’ve given me another reason to be thankful, as you have included my Angelic Business series in such an illustrious and feathery company! I remember the birds in your own stories (they are all very memorable, and very important in the stories), and I’ll make sure I check some of your other suggestions because I’m a fan of birds and of the writers you feature. I hope the day goes well and your stuff gives you a break, if not disappear completely. Big hugs!

  5. Hi Teagan, what a wonderful idea and theme. I just love birds. Thank you for including my short story here. I didn’t know about this particular book of Denise’s, I am just finishing Elizabeth’s War which is an excellent peep into WW1 through the eyes of an American farming family. Your books are all wonderful and I have to finish Dead of Winter, only two booklets to go, and I also want to read Pip’s short stories.
